Just been browsing our analytics and I have found that we've had just over 106,000,000 pageviews since May 2008.

That's approximately 3 times the population of Oceana and about the same as the number of people in the USA who own a smartphone.

I was quite impressed!!

We've also had 2.376 million unique visitors to the site.

Cheers for being one of them (sounds a bit cringeworthy, but thanks anyway)

Congratulations to the website, and you guys working hard to keep it in tip-top condition! :) :D :drinks: :sun_bespectacled: :party:

Can you imagine how many page views you'd have if the forum software functioned 'normally', i.e. notification emails were sent out once when a topic was responded to, referring users to the thread, rather than containing the body of every subsequent post?

Just sayin'. :-)
Basses: Fender '73 Precision Fretted (rosewood) | Fender '71 Precision Fretless (rosewood) | Maruszczyk Jake P/J (x2)
Amplification: HandBox R-400 head | TKS Engineering S112 & S212 cabs | Ibanez Promethean P5110


Bands: The Lindisfarne Story | The Caffreys | Rosie & the Hips
